History of Acupuncture
Acupuncture developed in China in ancient times. Its use continues to modern times. The technique of acupuncture uses solid, very fine needles inserted into specific spots in the body to treat various ailments. While scientists can’t explain exactly how and why acupuncture works to relieve headaches and other head pain, the resulting relief found by those who use acupuncture for a headache and other types of pain relief remains hard to deny.
The Theory of Acupuncture
The theory behind acupuncture states that inserting the needles appropriately stimulates the body’s ability to correct energy imbalances, thereby allowing the body to overcome pain or illness. According to the tenants of acupuncture, energy flows through the body through meridians. This energy is called “chi,” which is pronounced “chee.” According to the philosophy of acupuncture, if something disrupts the chi to the head, a headache might result. A qualified acupuncturist uses needles placed in the correct parts of the body to allow the chi to flow through the body, correcting the energy flow imbalance. When the chi flows correctly through the head and neck, pain relief occurs.
Some scientists believe that acupuncture causes the body to release endorphins and other natural pain-relieving chemicals into the system. However acupuncture works, it successfully treats headaches for many people. The treatments are painless, and the benefits are worthwhile.
